MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

Greetings,

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the website of the Mitchellville-Bowie Section of the National Council of Negro Women, Inc. (NCNW). NCNW is a historic civil rights organization committed to advancing opportunities and improving the quality of life for African American women. Founded in 1935 by Mary McLeod Bethune, NCNW’s mission is to lead, develop, and advocate for women of African descent as they support their families and communities. NCNW reaches nearly 4 million women through wellness projects, economic empowerment, career development and signature events such as the Black Family Reunion Celebration and the Bethune-Height Recognition Program. Since its founding in 1935, NCNW has played a prominent leadership role in unifying African American women and advocating for causes that affect their lives and families.

The Mitchellville-Bowie Section of NCNW was chartered on April 10, 1998, by 62 adults and 10 youth, to serve families in the Northern Prince George’s County area. In harmony with the national initiatives, NCNW-MB promotes unity of actions among all women in matters affecting educational, cultural, economic, social, and civic life. The Section's goals are to: strengthen family life; promote cultural enrichment; foster continued education of children and youth; and promote community pride. We are proud, excited and look forward to implementing our community-outreach programs and supporting our Youth Group which seeks to inspire the leaders of tomorrow to make a difference in their communities today.

We meet every fourth Monday in the Largo-Kettering Library at 7pm. Please attend a meeting to learn more about our outreach into the community and our Youth activities. Also, continue to visit our website to read about upcoming events.
